MOON MAGIC Astrological Timing for Success – November 2010

Nov 19, 2010 12:53PM

It’s a New World!

The month begins with Celtic New Year Nov 1-7, a New Venus rising Nov 1 and the Mayan New Year beginning the final year of the Mayan calendar Nov 3. Now the Mayan “6th Night,” the malevolent year of Tlahuizcal­­­­ “the god before dawn,” is ended and the benefic “7th Day” of the supreme creator god/goddess Ometeotl begins. Tlahuizcal is an angry god who blames others for his failures and shoots arrows at the Sun because he is offended by its brightness. This year conjured out all the world’s shadows to be cleared. According to the Mayans, the reign of Tlahuizcal precedes the return of Quetzalcoatl, the Morning Star. To the ancient Egyptians, Venus rising before the Sun is Bennu, the Phoenix. The Phoenix is the higher symbol of Scorpio, the sign of this New Venus. The flight of the Phoenix, the rising of Venus in Scorpio, signals the dawning of a new age.

The Celtic New Year celebration Samhain culminates Nov 7, the autumn cross-quarter. This mid-Scorpio energy gate is symbolized by the Ace of Cups in Tarot and the Ace of Hearts in playing cards. All that would block our hearts full opening to love comes up before this gate to be released. Love is born anew as the New Venus appears with the Nov 7 crescent New Moon.

This new energy wave crests Nov 20-23 with the Tripuri Purnima Full Moon and the Sagittarius Gate of Inspiration. It’s a New World!

Nov 1– Reunion

Hallowmas / All Saints Day / Celtic New Year Samhain

Celebrate to renew ancestral power by recalling those who have crossed over to the other world. The astral veil is thinnest Nov 1-7. Now is the time for the rejoining of the sacred circle and renewal of the light within that will emerge triumphant in Spring.

Nov 2-4 – Make a Wish!

Balsamic Moon

Put wishes on the air and bring people to mind for healing. Feeling invokes healing and the deeper we feel, the more we heal. Needs felt now invoke Moon Magic from the new lunar cycle

Nov 7 – Happy New Year!

Hallowmas / Samhain / Celtic New Year

Hallowmas is one of the 8 fire festivals celebrated at equinoxes, solstices and cross-quarter days. These are times when changes are more easily made in our inner and outer world. The Celts celebrated their New Year on Nov 7 when the Sun crosses the midpoint of Scorpio. Fixed sign midpoints fix or focus energy for the following season. The mid-Scorpio Gate portends what will be in the winter season and winter sets the course for the year. So this mid-Scorpio cross-quarter is the creative source (caldron/grail) of the year. At this time the astral veil is thinnest and shadows of the past (year and lifetime) are transformed opening the way for the future to be realized.

Nov 7-9 (10:11 am 11/7 - 2:31 pm 11/9) Change Habits

Moon Out of Bounds South

As the Moon "rides low" below the zodiac, our "under world" is illuminated. Outmoded belief patterns and energy blocks are revealed and more easily let go. This is a time to go beneath the surface, make new discoveries, change habits and renovate our inner world.

Nov 7-10 - Time to Sow

Crescent New Moon

This time favors all new beginnings. Energy is strongest Sunset to Moonset when the Moon shines through the 7th House. Meditation now opens doorways, wishes take wing and prayers seeded bring blessings for this Moon and the Year to be. New Moon with New Venus brings new love and new creation.

1st Quarter Moon, Nov 13 (11:39 am) – Let Go the Old, Power On the New

The First Quarter Moon is like a scythe cutting across the sky. This is a day for decision, a time to cut free of the past and affirm our higher purpose. Choices made now are apt to be right ones.

Nov 21 (6:37 pm) – Imagine!

Moon at the Equator/Zero Point North

Lunar 0 Points are cosmic balance times for creative imagination. Moon at the Equator going North is a time for envisioning. The magic window opens for two hours 5:37 pm – 7:37 pm.

Nov 21 – Transformation and Liberation

Tripuri Purnima Full Moon

Hindus celebrate Shiva's victory over the “city demons” Tripuri at this Sun in Scorpio Full Moon. Shiva is the god of dance, death and transformation (all things Scorpio). Communities celebrate lighting lamps and candles to honor and welcome the Lord of the Dance. Cosmic energies flow through for three days following the exact Full Moon (12:27 pm 11/21). Full Moon revelations come in dreams, chance encounters, and flashes of inspiration. Stay tuned!

Nov 21-24 (9:18 pm 11/21 - 1:01 am 11/24) Ready for Change

Moon Out of Bounds North

We are more open-minded when the Moon travels the higher world, the realm of freedom and imagination. New ideas are more easily and successfully shared. This time favors new business ventures, new discoveries and special social gatherings. Early morning Nov 22 is most magical when the Moon sails high over Orion.

Nov 22-23 (5:15 am 11/22 - 5:15 am 11/23) Open to Receive

Euterpe Gate of Inspiration

Whatever blocks our flow comes before the Gate to be let go. Euterpe is the muse of music and “bringer of pleasure.” This is a time to release body tensions that hold outmoded ways of thinking and feeling. Breathe deeply and move freely (yoga, tai chi, dance!) to shed the old and be present to the power and possibilities of the time.

Nov 25 - Family and Community Celebration


This will be an especially bountiful harvest celebration with benefic Jupiter shining brightly on high. Thanksgiving is always celebrated in fun-loving Sagittarius on a Thursday, day of Jupiter (or Thor), the ruler of Sagittarius. Jupiter is the planet of enjoyment, joviality, and good cheer. Enjoy!

Nov 28 (exact 9/30 11:52 pm edt) – Dreams in Action

3rd Quarter Moon

This Moon cuts away all that distracts from realizing dreams in action. 3rd Quarter Moon integrates new ideas into creative expression. Now it's time to follow our bliss and do just what feels good in concert with the whole.

Nov 29 (11:25 am) - Meditate

Moon at the Equator / Zero Point South

Lunar 0 Points are cosmic balance times ideal for creative imagination.

0 South is a time to connect with and seed the new cycle. The magic portal opens for 2 hours 10:25 am - 12:25 pm.
